Pumpkins for Schools
Bank of New Hampshire in collaboration with the Lakes Region Chamber is reaching out to local schools to carve pumpkins for NH Pumpkin Festivals. We need to know which schools are participating, how many pumpkins you will be bringing to display and the name of the business(es) donating pumpkins to your school. We look forward to your continued participation at NH Festival 2022!
All pumpkins/jack-o-lanterns will be displayed in Rotary Park. We will follow up with instructions on when pumpkins may be dropped off, where to drop them off and are always grateful for volunteers to help unload the pumpkins and place them on display racks.
Please e-mail kgifford@LakesRegionChamber.org if your school plans to carve pumpkins by October 17th. Be sure to include your school name, contact person, email, a phone number and how many pumpkins you plan to bring so we can have enough A-frames & displays.
A huge thank you to Laconia Housing Authority for support with candles to light the pumpkins. Schools are welcome to bring their own candles, too. We recommend 4 hour votive candles or battery operated LED pumpkins lights.
If you would like to be part of the Volunteer Lighting Brigade, please be at Rotary Park near the pumpkin displays at 4:45pm. It truly takes a community brigade!!
